Growing up in Southern California desensitized me to even the most basic of fashion common sense. No, it wasn't the ever changing styles gracing the nearby Los Angeles red carpets, it was the seemingly utter lack of change in seasons. It's no Hawaii, but our little patch of sunshine rarely dips below 40, and our hometown hasn't seen measurable snowfall in over 50 years, and that was a flurry. However, living just moments from the beach, and an hour and half from the snow capped mountains, we have plenty of opportunity to leave our little corner of warmth and venture out into other terrains and climates. Unfortunately, Momma wasn't that explorer type, when I was growing up, and the truest kick of reality often came stepping off an airplane in Providence, RI, every Winter vacation.
We received a size 10 Igloo 2 fashionable boot in black, from Khombu. While women's sizing does extend upwards to 12 in certain styles, the brand's main cap seems to be size 10. Sabrina (11) who most recently back-to-school shopped into size 9 1/2 women's shoes, noted that the fit was very true, and she had just enough wiggle room to double insulate her feet with two pairs of socks to fill the extra half size. All Khombu fashions brag that they are waterproof, and the Igloo 2 style is no different. It's hard to believe this stylish shoe is, but the suede outer is waterproof and even features a comfortable thermolite insole that is shock-absorbent and quickly wicks away moisture for maximum comfort and warmth. The only visible 'hard core' portion of these shoes are the thick soles, with intelligently designed grip patterns and a non-slip design. It's hard to believe the Igloo 2's could be so practical with the gorgeous black finish and beautiful buckle accent.
What Daughter Says: Fall in love with fashionable footwear that is equally practical, thanks to Khombu's Fall footwear fashions.
